Talk to Someone

“If you know there are people out there to support you, you feel better about yourself.”

Therapists are available to those who have a history of sexual exploitation and feel they are ready to achieve their goals in their healing journey.

CEASE works primarily with two counselling organizations with specialized expertise in counselling those who have been sexually exploited and suffer from complex PTSD.

What past participants said about counselling services:

“Counselling is a safe place to go where someone can listen to you and unconditionally accept you and guide you. Counselling has given me the possibility of a meaningful life. I can now contribute to society; it makes me a whole new person again.”

“As part of my healing process, I went back to visit the place where I used to be involved in exploitation and dealt with it. Found empowerment in realizing I am not a victim anymore.”

“Counselling helped me to completely set boundaries to stop working (in massage) and have the ability to say no and feel good about it. I developed skills to be assertive and feel good about decision making.”
